Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes Enhanced Ebook Launched for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

We’re excited to announce the official release of our enhanced ebook for Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes: Unforgettable Experiments That Make Science Fun. The print version of the book (Greenleaf Book Group) is available in book stores throughout the country, and the enhanced ebook version is available through the iTunes Store. While there’s nothing new about ebooks per se, the notion of an enhanced ebook is very new. In fact, it’s so new that our scientifically enhanced version of Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is officially the 75th enhanced ebook title ever published. In just a few months, the previous statement will seem so insignificant because there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of titles that flood the market.

Visit the iTunes Store through your iBooks application and search for “Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes”.

What’s the difference between an ebook and an enhanced ebook?

We think of an ebook as a simple conversion of the written word to a generic electronic reader (Kindle or a Nook, for example). The enhanced version incorporates both images and video. This new enhanced ebook is available through the iTunes Store and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Unlike a standard ebook, the enhanced version includes over 200 photos and 37 videos that help the reader to see the WOW FACTOR behind each of the cool science activities.

About the Book

This is not your ordinary book of science experiments. Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes is a geek-chic look at Steve Spangler’s latest collection of tricks and try-it-at-home activities that reveal the secrets of science in unexpected ways. What makes this book different from other science experiment books is the amazing photography. Over 200 color photographs and 37 videos accompany the step-by-step instructions and simple explanations to uncover the how-to and why for each activity. Make potatoes fly, cornstarch turn into quicksand, and 2-liter bottles of soda explode on command.

    Hi Steve , Thanks for inspiring great thinking. Steve I take my Sunday School class outside and blow bubbles every Sunday morning. I have made the bubbles with sugar, this works really well. Why does this work? Also, Dawn dish soap seems to work the best. Why?? Thanks, Eileen
